HOLIDAY​ ​PROGRAMMING/SHOPPING

Post​ ​1

You know why I’m looking forward to the holidays more than ever this year? Because
they’re going to be fun AND stress-free. Finally, there’s one super-convenient spot to
shop for literally everyone, pick up provisions for my holiday parties + do other festive
stuff while I’m shopping. I’m checking off my list from @citypointbklyn’s
@century21stores, @target, @flyingtigerusa, and just for kids @wearelittlegiants and
@torlyandtooby. Even better, when I need to be resuscitated (and I will!), there’s
@dekalbmarkethall with food & drink from around the globe + groceries from
@traderjoes. But I’m saving my really special shopping for their BKLYN SHOPS on
12/9-10. It’s being curated by Andrea Linett (@alinett) author and former Lucky
Magazine creative director, and will be filled with one-of-a-kind finds. So yeah, I’m
planning to shop till I drop. But it’s gonna feel so good!

Again feel free to tweak to fit your voice, you can edit store mentions to simply includes
those you feel aligned to. Include store handles referenced above, @citypointbklyn,
Andera Linett (@alinett)

God Closes Doors...

One of the many reasons why I started a blog back in 2010 was because I loved to write.

Gift Guide: For Your Sister (3 Types)

When I asked whether you all wanted gift guides on the blog, I got a couple of interesting requests.

The minute I laid eyes on these Hunter boots online, I realized I was already reaching for my credit card... 

Finally Sweater Weather

When it comes to packing, I almost always end up bringing things I don't necessarily need... 
however, my quick trip to South Carolina required this.

Navy on Navy


No doubt, today will be one of those Mondays where my coffee will need a coffee.

As an influencer, staying silent is actually one of the hardest things to do for me.
I love interaction with my followers - you guys - who make my passion worth it. I love creating content knowing that it'll inspire, influence, and motivate someone else who might just stumble upon it or need it in that moment.

So staying silent has been really tough for me.
Which. brings. me. to... this.
